SALT LAKE CITY – Real Salt Lake stunned the Major League Soccer world with yet another playoff victory. Social media reacted in shock.

Despite being down 1-0 at the half following a careless challenge by Aaron Herrera that led to a Johnny Russell penalty, Real Salt Lake mustered a special second half to come from behind at Children’s Mercy Park.

Legendary Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando stated that this playoff run by Real Salt Lake is starting to feel a bit like 2009.

Real Salt Lake color commentator and former defender agrees.

National soccer presence Alexi Lalas has joined the Real Salt Lake bandwagon with his “Talk it…and walk it,” comment following the victory.

The shock in USMNT legend Stu Holden’s tweet sums up the upset victory reasonably well.

And finally, MLS savant Mathew Doyle confirms what all RSL fans already knew by informing his audience that Real Salt Lake was the better team on the day.

Next Match

Real Salt Lake will travel to Portland for the Western Conference Final next weekend. The official time and date are yet to be announced by Major League Soccer.

It will mark the first conference final appearance for Real Salt Lake since 2013.
